“Blood will have blood”: A Review of Punchdrunk’s ‘Sleep No More’ - Stanford Arts Review

"I’m not convinced you need a drink to enter Sleep No More, but I am convinced that you need an open mind. "

London theater review: Oscar winner Chiwetel Ejiofor carries ‘Everyman’ - The Stanford Daily

"For a 15th-century morality play where the entire plot revolves around a sinner’s meeting with Death, the National Theater’s adaptation of “Everyman” by Carol Ann Duffy feels surprisingly modern and trendy. "

 

'All These Sleepless Nights' is a mesmerizing look at youth culture in post-communist Poland - The Seventh Row

"The film is a never-ending whirlwind of girls, drugs, and smoke that’s not actually about girls or drugs or smoke, but the loneliness in between them. "

Reflection as assistant director

"I assisted director Leah Gardiner on Anna Deavere Smith’s Pipeline Project. In this one-woman show, Anna embodies 19 different characters, mainly people whom she interviewed about the school-to-prison pipeline recently."

NB: The show is now called "Notes from the Field."

"There were many daggers and seemingly endless blood, as is to be expected with Macbeth, of course. But our production surprised people - for better or for worse - with the way we experimented… with gender, Heiner Müller, puppets, projections, mirrors, shadow play, witches as murderers, actors as spectators, and audience members as popsicle sticks."

"In our first year as Stanford Repertory Theater (formerly Stanford Summer Theater), producing two full productions of Orson Welles adaptations, our company won four Theater Bay Area Awards and captured the imaginations of even more audience members."

Reflection on meeting Tony Kushner and Young Jean Lee

"'I don’t really know what Angels is… I mean it’s seven hours long and things happen.' That’s how Kushner described the Pulitzer Prize-winning, groundbreaking play that put him on the national stage. It was this witty, jokingly self-deprecating manner combined with well-articulated political and philosophical sentiments that characterized Kushner’s talk at Stanford as part of the Playwright Series."

"Young Jean Lee truly provided a refreshing take on how to tackle the real world. In this pseudo-independence that is college, we don’t always get to hear that perspective from an established artist who is making exciting theater happen in the 'real world.' The conversation gave us a lot of food for thought regarding concrete ways to pursue a living as an artist. She challenged us to really examine our own goals and push ourselves above and beyond to achieve them. I know I, for one, strive to meet that challenge."
